Abbey Clancy fulfilled her catwalk destiny Wednesday night and walked in the Lingerie London show. The show featured couture and luxury lingerie designs by Agent Provocateur and Atsuko Kudo. Unfortunately our favorite lingerie designer, Marks & Spencer, did not show. Maybe next time.

Regrettably, Drew, we did notice the ‘do. What kind of uglyitis fashion abomination was that?
We also picked up on Francesco Acerbi’s ‘I’m sad in a butterfly sit’ sulking, Vito Mannone going down on Ibrahim Afellay – literally – and the fact that we carelessly misplaced our binders full of ‘ballers during halftime (thanks for the idea, Mittens), which were still ruing several caffeinated hours later.
How did woeful loss Wednesday treat our lovely readers? Were you disturbed by your late night snack choices (we stress ate our nails to basically nothing). And didn’t last night feel like you were watching a Three Stoges rerun or something? Trios of players, impossibly tangled up the way a yarn ball is, pissy as hell, as if they’re about to bring down the runner purely by slapstick comedy?

Random Coleen Rooney hiding her baby bump pic breakdown: hair, casually coiffed. Celine Mini Luggage tote, approved. Studded motorcyle boots, very last season. Col’s diamond earrings, fabulously visible to the naked eye. The camo jacket, no comment. The Thursday Friday bag on her right shoulder, misunderstood.
Wait a second, what is that thing? An artist’s hand-sketched rendering of a Balenciaga bag? In appliqué form? Steam pressed on canvas? Can we invent a new word like cappliqué to represent our emotional state of unwell shoulder bag being?
